7-8 Year Old Coach Pitch Hard Ball Division

UpdatedWednesday December 15, 2021 byWD Baseball.

8U Division - 2022 Season

Rookie League- This division is for 7-8 year olds (Going into 2nd & 3rd grades). An official little league hard ball is used and some rules of play are adjusted to better prepare these players for the next step of 9-10 year old player pitch baseball. Coaches do the pitching in this league. 

The teams in this division are formed by the coaching coordinators based on registration.  The first priority for forming teams is ensuring that each team has an even number of 7 year olds and 8 year olds.  From there we will try to honor as many parent requests as possible, but we will not allow that to override the first priority of teams with even numbers.  If we have more requests than we can honor then we will utilize registration dates as a first come basis for requests.

Practice dates and times for this division vary and are dependent on the coach and availability of fields.  Practice times will be determined and communicated by your team's coach and will not be known until early to mid April. 

Game nights are expected to be on Fridays for the 2022 Season starting in mid May through mid July.  This is subject to change based on the number of teams.  The published schedule goes to the end of July with the purpose of getting in as many games as possible.  If inclement weather cancels a game, an attempt to reschedule the game at the end of the season will be made, but is not guaranteed and is dependent on teams being able to field enough players.

8 Year olds (2nd graders) who are interested in being evaluated to play up in this division should register for the 9-10 year old division.  Please note: 1st priority for placement in the 9-10 year old division is for kids currently in 3rd or 4th grade.  If rosters are full with players who are 9 and 10 years old then any younger players will be moved down to their age appropriate division (8U).
